Bossa Studios, The London-based indie developer behind Surgeon Simulator and I Am Bread, has picked up the exclusive rights to publish cat-themed dating sim, Purrfect Date.
Purrfect Date, a visual novel dating sim that’s been in development since December 2015, started off as a passion project developed by Bossa Studios’ Marketing Content Producer Oliver Hindle. Hindle and his partner, Ruby-Mae Roberts, had been working on the game in their spare time for around 18 months before his employer took note of the project and offered to publish the title in-house.
When it releases on PC and Mac later this year, Purrfect Date will also allow players to ‘meet’ real-life cats owned by a number of YouTube personalities — Dodger’s cats, Sherlock and Watson; Yogscast Hannah’s cat, Libby; and Michael from Vsauce’s cat, Corn.
I don’t know about you, but I am super-ready to make out with cats in a video game. This is the bright future we were promised.
